Skrooge 1.8.0 released

Blog Tags: 

The Skrooge team is pleased to announce the release 1.8.0 of its popular personal finances management application. Some Highlights include :

  • Recovery of corrupted files : this seems to happen on some setups where the skrooge file is synchronised to a distant file system. In such situations, the user may be asked to enter a password even though the file was never password protected. Fortunately, there is a way to recover the data, so this is now done automatically when this happens.
  • Notifications are now displayed inside the application (as in dolphin) instead of using system notifications.
  • Import of Microsoft Money files
